  • 1 pound Yukon Gold or red potatoes, cubed

  • 1 pound mushrooms (shiitake, cremini, oyster or other fresh mushrooms), trimmed and sliced

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced

  • 14 ounces halibut, grouper or cod fillet, cut into 4 portions

  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence

  • Fresh thyme for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Toss potatoes, mushrooms, 1 Tbsp. oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Transfer to a 9x13-inch baking dish. Roast until the vegetables are just tender, 30 to 40 minutes.

  3. Stir the vegetables, then stir in garlic. Place fish on top. Drizzle with lemon juice and the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil. Sprinkle with herbes de Provence. Bake until the fish is opaque in the center and flakes easily, 10 to 15 minutes. Garnish with thyme, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
